Is $\Omega \left(\frac{n}{\log{n}} \right)\subset \tilde\Omega(n)$?


The notation $\tilde\Omega$ isn't completely standard, and should be explained whenever used. Usually it hides logarithmic factors, and in that case, what you wrote holds.

  • $\begingroup$ In the abstract you can skip the explanation, but be sure to mention it in the body of the paper. $\endgroup$ – Yuval Filmus Jul 24 '18 at 16:58
  • $\begingroup$ Sounds good, thanks. I'll just footnote the abstract. $\endgroup$ – Elliot Gorokhovsky Jul 24 '18 at 16:58
